If you can believe it….

…they have me preach once a year at my Congregational church. Here’s this year’s effort. Nothing new to anyone who commits the sin of reading this blog. It’s very internetty — not a good theological effort — so I could make some specific points about our congregation. But I was glad to be able to quote a few blog friends (the latter from the VC monastary).

: I asked my sister for relevant scripture (handy having a Rev in the family) and she gave me Galatians 5:1-6, which is about not being enslaved to the law. The law under discussion happens to be one about circumcision. The associate pastor called rather confused: Uh… was I preaching about circumcision? No, I explained. She deftly desexed the verse.

: Here’s an earlier, better effort.
